Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!
This has been a long and amazing year. Thanks to support from Yoko Ono, a little digital magic, and some more beautiful animation from TAXI, we have a video message from John Lennon about the power of education to change the world. See for yourself.
And I feel obligated to remind you of these two great videos:
- TED follows up on their Nicholas Negroponte talk from 2006 in the Colombian jungle
- CEIBAL make two of my favorite vids of 2008
UPDATE: Lennon is now a top-2010 video on Youtube, and the top in many countries… with a lot of media interest in South America and Europe. It is quite a polarizing spot.
UPDATE: Lennon is now, after less than a week, the most popular OLPC video online, eclipsing the Sugar demo and TED clips in total viewership, with almost 1100 comments.
Postscript: I have the full cut of the final G1G1 thank-you video montage, now posted on Dailymotion. Simply beautiful. Thank you to Jason and Michelle for pulling that together.
